July brings fireworks, picnics, pools and air conditioning. It is a time for those of us in the USA to celebrate our “birthday” and a personal time for me to celebrate life. It is hot and humid days and thunderstorms cooked up at night. I am continuing my challenge to find happiness and gratitude in every day. Join along in the comments or on your own blog. There is always good in every day.
I am doing this early tonight so that the fatigue doesn’t get me again. It has been a pretty quiet day. My boyfriend stayed home from work so we both slept in today. The only trip out of the house was to the apartment offices to sign paperwork on our lease.
I have been writing a little beyond my posts here today. I have been getting some emotions out onto paper. I feel if I hadn’t I would have been fighting the tears today. I hate having days when all around me is normal and fine, but I feel like things are caving in on me. Those are some of the days I need the writing the most. Depression can be so frustrating when your brain knows there is no “reason” to be down, but you just are. So I write and I am grateful I can.
My happy moment was a simple pleasure. A treat for my taste buds. My boyfriend did a peach crisp dump cake today and it was delicious. I know emotional eating is not great but some days comfort food is just what you need and some warm peach crisp was it for me today.
I think it is time to take my bedtime meds and hope for a peaceful nights sleep. I hope everyone has a happy and grateful weekend!
